CAE and Air Canada announced the signing of an exclusive five-year aircraft maintenance training partnership agreement. As a result, CAE is now Air Canada’s embedded Transport Canada Approved Training Organization for Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering. 

The agreement includes the development, management and delivery of all of Air Canada’s maintenance and engineering training, including all regulatory approved training.  CAE will implement many of its state-of-the-art digital training technologies, including training and qualifications management, virtual 360 aircraft environments and a new digital solution that will enable Air Canada to explore modern training environments such as evidence-based training. 

“Throughout the years, several manufacturers have entrusted CAE with its excellent training and technology,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “This first of its kind training agreement between two Canadian companies will provide a training experience true to the aircraft platforms with high level of instruction, service, courseware and technology. I’m confident that this partnership will allow us to work closely by developing and fine-tuning specific training programs for Air Canada.”

“This first of its kind, industry leading agreement will bring together Air Canada’s technical aircraft maintenance excellence with CAE’s focus and excellence in training environment,” said Richard Steer, Air Canada’s Senior Vice President of Operations. “I look forward to the implementation of Air Canada’s Aircraft Maintenance Training Center of Excellence, which will bring two world class, Canadian companies together.”
